Love Island star Wes Nelson reveals he’s a ‘millionaire’ after making ‘wise investments’

The 22-year-old rose to fame on the 2018 series of Love Island


Wes Nelson has revealed that he’s a “millionaire” – two years after he rose to fame on Love Island.

The 22-year-old was a fan favourite on the 2018 series, which led to him appearing on other major TV shows like Dancing On Ice and The X Factor: Celebrity.

Speaking to The Sun about his success since leaving the Love Island villa, Wes said: “I was a millionaire by the age of 21.”

“And that’s not being a show off or anything, but it’s wise investments and understanding this life doesn’t last forever.”

“I’ve been lucky to have so many shows under my belt, and I’m super grateful for that,” he continued.

“I have a passive income and generational wealth, so my children, whenever they come about, they’re not going to have to work again. I don’t have to work again.”

The news comes after Wes recently signed his first record deal with EMI Records, after he impressed fans with his vocal talents on the celebrity version of The X Factor last year.

On the latest episode of Goss Chats, Goss.ie Founder Ali Ryan chats to The 2 Johnnies ahead of their highly anticipated RTÉ series ‘The 2 Johnnies Do America’.
